Kim Kardashian West was held at gunpoint in her hotel room in Paris by 5 robbers who stole her jewellery worth millions of dollars, on Sunday, as the police confirmed.
Kim Kardashian West’s spokesperson, Ina Treciokas, conveyed that Kim was “badly shaken but physically unharmed”.
Her bodyguards, too, were handcuffed by the robbers, who appeared at Kim’s hotel room doorstep, with a a mask on their face and wearing police officers’ outfit, pretending to be fake police men.
Kim Kardashian had been in Paris since the last week with her mother, Kris Jenner, and sister, Courtney to support Kendall Jenner, who walked the ramp at the Paris Fashion Show.
Earlier on the day of the robbery Kim Kardashian had attended a Balenziaga show. She had even posted pictures of herself and of her taken by the paparazzi on her social media account. On the same day Kim had joked about her chauffeur photo-bombing her pictures.

At the time of the incident, Kanye West was in New York, performing at the Meadows music and arts festival in Citi Field. Upon receiving the devastating news, Kaney abruptly stopped the show, where he was in the middle of singing Heartless, and rushed off the stage apologising to his audience saying he had to immediately leave due to “Family Emergency”.
This unfortunate incident was followed by yet another situation of harassment faced by Kim Kardashian, where a man, Vitalii Sediuk, tried to kiss her buttocks. The same man had earlier, harassed Gigi Hadid. While Vitalii tried to kiss Kim’s butt, he was stopped by her secretary and pinned down by Kardashian’s body guard.
Kim had also been rather public about the event, while she gave a shout out to her bodyguard on twitter, saying:

However, the Kardashians have been mum about the situation on their social media handles, which are otherwise always active.
